Community Tips: We are a friendly association, and would like for this to remain so. Please be kind to your fellow visitors. Hold them in the regard you yourself would like to be held. Constructive criticism is always welcome, cruelty and mean spirited comments will not be tolerated at all.
We adore seeing most of all: New steampunk outfits, gorgeous clothes bought or handmade , modified props, lovely home wares. We also don't mind interesting art, fine film and literature, and news items of note as long as fashion has something to do with it. Steam themed events are also beloved, providing you note what country and state the event is in. The sun never sets on Steamfashion, after all.

Now on to eye candy so you who have seen this all at one point have something new to look at.

Presenting Miss Ivy Hisselpenny


I attended OzComicCon in Melbourne last weekend and for my first foray into Cosplaying I chose Ivy Hisselpenny from gailcarriger's Parasol Protectorate series. As well as being a fun character, I thought it was a good choice for my first steampunk costume. It has clear elements from the time period (as the books are set in the 1870s), but is light on the overtly steampunk gadgetry side which I felt would be a bit too much for my first steampunk costume (though I did acquire some lovely goggles at the con!) Plus, I got to wear an awesomely outrageous hat!



The hat!Collapse )

I was happy with the end result and look forward to creating more steampunk costumes in the future :)

I was browsing the web looking for a specific hat from a tv commercial when i stumbled upon these can-be-steamed hats "on sale".

I can't say about the quality or the make but they are rather discounted. (maybe for daily use as opposed to fancy time?)
